We are searching for mentors who are willing to help our seniors through their senior thesis projects.

The time commitment varies, but it’s largely dictated by the work the student is doing and the mentor’s availability. Please let me know if you or someone you know is interested in our program. You can view the list of topics here: 2015-2016 Senior Thesis Topics. Please contact me ( if you have questions or comments. Thank you.

TAG Magnet is going 1-to-1! This year, we are excited to roll out our 1-to-1 laptop program, where each TAG student will be issued a laptop for use in school and at home for the duration of the school year at no cost. Use of laptops will be integrated across the curriculum at TAG to increase student engagement, streamline organization, and provide access to new resources for all students.

Before we can issue laptops to students, a parent or guardian must attend one mandatory parent/guardian meeting on campus so that we can go over the specific responsibilities of students and parents regarding the new laptops.

The parent/guardian laptop orientation meeting will cover the following:

  • Laptop Specifications
  • Acceptable Use
  • Student Responsibilities
  • Parent Responsibilities
  • On-Campus Technical Support

Parents and guardians only need to attend one meeting. We have scheduled these meetings at various times and dates over the next three weeks to accommodate different schedules. The dates we currently have scheduled are:

  • Thursday, Sept 3rd, 6:00 – 7:00 pm
  • Friday, Sept 11th, 8:00 – 9:00am (this coincides with the TAG PTSA Coffee)
  • Tuesday, Sept 15th, 6:30 – 7:30pm or 7:30 – 8:30pm (coincides with the TAG PTSA Meeting)

We highly encourage every parent to attend one of these meetings! If you are not able to attend any of these meetings, please call the TAG office (972-925-5970) and we will take your name and work to find an alternative date for you to join us.
